How can I contact Calavera?

Postby Roofus » Sun Nov 19, 2017 12:22 pm

With the demise of Grim Fandango and Goodwill practically the only source for used 80s electronics, it has come to my attention that it appears that old reel to reel tape decks appear to be either sold out or no longer available. Does anyone know how I may contact Calavera to find out if this is the case, or if there are still more available, but the flea market has simply dropped it out of the lack of interest for top loader VCRs.

The only way to reach him is by calling him on one of these:

Legend has it that if you hold a up a laserdisc and use it like a mirror and say Knight Rider 3 times he will appear and give you a copy of Max Headroom on betamax.

:rofl:
The English language had deteriorated into a hybrid of hillbilly, valleygirl, inner-city slang and various grunts. Joe was able to understand them, but when he spoke in an ordinary voice he sounded pompous and faggy to them.

Hey, it’s a tough economy. Betamax isn’t cheap.

Still cheaper when adjusted for inflation.

I suppose that is true. A friend of mine used to work for NASA in 1985 and took home $1,000 a week. Adjusted for inflation that is just under 7 billion dollars.

$17.99 for one tape! I'm actually surprised they still sell them.

They only quit manufacturing them in March 2016. I'd like to buy a couple brand new ones just to have. Not for $17.99 though.

That's real interesting, I think they were still making VHS a few years back too. About a year or so you could buy generic VHS blank tapes for like £1 each. I assume there's still a niche market for them. I'm assuming Betamax were still made for the Japanese market
